The player that the beefed up front could help the most...

He's missed 8 games last year and about 3 in the 8 years before that. Now he's injury prone. I hear ya man, I disagree. You also said he's lost step, right? In what way? I havnt followed his career so im interested in hearing this.

 

He was a 4.4 guy earlier in his career I caught some of the lions games and he got torched last season, I also saw a couple san diego games when he played for them, he was mediocre at his best.

I'm comfortable with the Joshes... it's the Safeties that I'm more concerned with.

Yup. I'm more worry about who's going to play beside Godfrey. I'm not sure in Campbell and Mitchell may really just be a camp body. I haven't heard or seen anything from him until we signed him. I hope we got a steal in Robert Lester. I love that mam and hope and can take advantage of it.

Yeeeah 4.4, Idk what were his splits I wonder. I dont think you can look at that 4.4 and say he can run in all phases just by that time itself. Have you watched him play since he was a rookie? Like, have you watched HIS game, not just the games he's playing since he came into the league. . or close to anyways?

 

What part of his technique looks bad?

 

 

edit: I mean lots of guys get torched. Smitty torches Revis so idk what to think of your statement.

From what I've seen on him he is a risk taker and it shows.... he is a physical tackler from the CB spot however...

I gotta say I would require that from my starters if I was a coach. Bigger backs like Stew will stiff arm you and laugh while they run over you if you cant tackle well. An NFL corner better be able to tackle period.

 

If he can cover . . for the most part, and he can tackle . . and he can stay healthy. He'll be fine with that front 7

Smitty and Revis only been matched up once. And Revis had the better of Smitty holding him to 1 catch for 5yards and two ints. I Dno where you are getting your info from.

Im not looking forward to seeing that 89 vs Revis matchups this year if it even happen. Even with Cam instead of Jake this time around.

they could step up into the pocket last year.

This

 

Gettleman and Rivera have both mentioned that getting Star and Kawan will help the interior pass rush so that the QBs won't be able to step up into the pocket and instead get flushed over into the rush of Hardy and CJ

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
